Road Trippin': Sepultura
The boys from Brazil celebrate 30 years of international brutality
DOES IT BLOW YOUR MIND THAT THIS IS YOUR 30TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR?
Andreas Kisser [guitar]:
“When Sepultura started touring in the 80s, we couldn’t go to many places. Now we’ve played 73 countries in 30 years! This is one of the most complete tours we’ve ever done. We’re celebrating the beautiful history of a Brazilian band singing in bad English! It’s like watching your own biographical movie. We respect and represent Sepultura as a whole, from the first album to the last, regardless of the formation. We’re still enjoying ourselves, which is what matters.”
ANY SURPRISES UP YOUR SLEEVE FOR THE UK SHOWS?
“We’re bringing a few songs we haven’t used before, like the early and raw Bestial Devastation, although Paolo Jr [bassist] is the only original member, so he played it years ago. Grief [from 2013’s The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart] is very dark and slow, and I’d love to reproduce that live, too.”
